EDP Norfolk - - INTERVIEW -

What is the largest an­i­mal you’ve cro­cheted?

A 25ft lion - one three cre­ated for the Lon­don 2012 Olympic Games. The li­ons toured the coun­try in a be­spoke mo­bile glass ve­hi­cle. Called The Li­on­heart Project, it was the world’s largest sin­gle­handed cro­chet sculp­ture.

And your favourite?

I think my favourite has to be the por­trait of Prince Harry as gin­ger ba­boon. It still makes me laugh.

Have you ever tried taxi­dermy?

I haven’t tried taxi­dermy, but by try­ing to cre­ate some­thing that looks life­like, I have an in­sight into how dif­fi­cult taxi­dermy must be. One eye a mil­lime­tre out of place and the whole thing looks off.

Do you ever cro­chet ‘nor­mal’ things too, like blan­kets or cardi­gans?

Not when I can buy them.
